Yale University Press

This chapter presents the first of a two-part column published on April 23, 1908, which reviews events the occurred over the past year. The column and its continuation (in SE no. 27) are couched in the style of Qajar chronicles, those dynastic histories (such as Fārsnāmeh-ye Nāseri and Montazem-e Nāseri) that record events in strict chronological order, year by year and even month by month. They are characterized by the sometimes incongruous juxtaposition of affairs of state, court trivia, and snippets of news from abroad.

Keywords:   Qajar chronicles, historical events, news stories, anecdotes, satire, Charand-o Parand, Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā, Sur-e Esrāfil, Iranian newspaper columns
